It's pretty slow here, but maybe we that do visit could have a book club thingy?
If we used books available on Gutenberg nobody would have to go out and pay for copies either. Easy to just go ahead.

Anyone game for it?

Just because there's more of that than fiction doesn't mean there isn't any.
Loads of early Sci-Fi for one thing. Kafkas Metamorphosis and The Trial are in there as well.
Take off your poop colored glasses.

Gutenberg is great especially if you use the non-american sites like AUS that have larger selections due to less copyright bullshit.

Libgen is a great choice too if you give no fucks about piracy.

I may participate. /lit/ has done a book club at least once before and it'd be cool to try it out again.

I've never done anything like it before ever, not even discussed a book with someone IRL tbh, so I'm very curious to try. Good to have a reason to actually get reading too.
That also means I don't know anything about how to format it successfully though.

Also I've been looking around a bit, and I have a suggestion for The Sorrows of Young Werther ( http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2527 ), I've been meaning to read it a while but never gotten around to it. Only about 60 pages too, good for a test run of book club format.

Coooool. I'll read whatever y'all decide as long as there's a link. Last time a poll was done to decide.

If no one else joins in maybe we all should begin and see if anyone else is interested jumping in on the next go around?

Yeah I think al people interested on board are already on board.
If we shouldn't do a PSA on /b/ so people who wouldn't normally bother visiting could join in. Dunno if that's a good or bad idea.

Either way, did anyone else have any book suggestions for a mini vote?

How about "Captives of the Flame" by Samuel R. Delany? i'm a huge fan of his works and haven't read that one. its also on Gutenberg. But i'm down for "The Sorrows of Young Werther" too.

No one else has any other suggestions, lets get this going.
